Introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1973 the Dino 308GT4 was not badged a Ferrari. To this day the Dino badged 308GT4 is the one to own. This example was on trademe NZ asking $90,000 in September 2018.
The GT4 was a groundbreaking model for Ferrari in several ways: it was the first production Ferrari to feature the mid-engined V8 layout that would become the bulk of the company's business in the succeeding decades, and was the first production Ferrari with Bertone (rather than Pininfarina) designed bodywork. Pininfarina was upset by the decision to give cross-town rival Bertone the design, considering all they had done for Ferrari.
The styling featured angular lines entirely different from its curvaceous 2-seater brother, the Dino 246, and was controversial at the time. Some journalists compared it to the Bertone-designed Lancia Stratos and Lamborghini Urraco, also penned by Marcello Gandini. From the cockpit the driver sees only the road. Enzo Ferrari himself took a major role in its design, even having a mock-up made where he could sit in the car to test different steering, pedals and cockpit seating positioning.
This is a rare opportunity to secure a well-cared for Rosso Corsa, tan interior Dino 308GT4 that is mechanically excellent and has patina from use. Imported into NZ in 1978 this car has a comprehensive history file. The GT4 offers superior driving and road-holding to the 308GTB and at a fraction of the price of its rivals - incredible value.
